Off the top of my head the following may be the case for your 1995 Cadillac Deville based on my 1997 Cadillac Deville knowledge:

gear indicator fault- has to do with the shift lever sensor down on the column by the feet,

service ride control- has to do with the air ride shocks in the back or the compressor in the front or the ride control height,

change oil soon- has to do with not resetting the % oil life (just press reset button for a few seconds when the oil % life is displayed)

Hope this helps you out.

I have a 1999 Plymouth Voyager Expresso, checked the oil stick & saw bubbles, is this a major repair?


Service engine soon light has nothing to do with the oil. It indicates that you have a problem in the electronics that control the engine and or the emission control system. You must get the system tested with a tool called a scanner to see what fault code was stored when the SES light was turned on. Please read your owners manual.

What does the "service engine soon" indicator light specifically mean?


when the service engine soon light is illuminated in your vehicle, it means that the on board self diagnostic system has detected a fault either in the engine, transmission, or accessory controls. when this light is illuminated, it means that there is a code stored in the vehicle memory which can be extracted with a code reader. any garage should be able to do this for you. good luck!

Service Engine Soon light reset.


The Service Engine Soon light comes only when the engine computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system, it is not related to the oil change, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

Just had oil change done on my 2000 alero now my service engine soon light is on.I want to know what this means


It simply means that the service indicator was not reset when the oil was changed. If the oil was changed professionally, then resetting the service indicator is usually part of the job.

It's not just a reminder to change the oil, it's also there to remind you to check/adjust/lubricate/replace other items such as the air filter, oil filter, spark plugs, fuel filter, dampers (UK=shock absorbers) etc.

The service indicator is simply a dumb counter keyed to mileage and time elapsed and cannot sense when you have completed a service. Resetting the indicator requires a special tool so you'll need to take your car to a suitably equipped garage.

Engine service soon displayed on dashboard allways. vehicle chevy van g20 starcraft 1993.


Why not just have the codes read and reset at a place like Autozone, that does it for free?
It could just be odometer based, telling you a maintenance is due based on miles.

The light on my dashboard is reading "check engine soon". What does that mean?


probably needs a tune-up. have the oil changed, change the spark plugs and wires, and if it persists, then there is probably a faulty sensor somewhere. at that point, then have your local parts store run a diagnostic test on it, usually free, and get the fault code.

Whath does "service engine soonmeans"


SERVICE ENGINE SOON and SERVICE ENGINE NOW are 2 amber warning lights pertaining to the vehicles computers.SERVICE SOON advises you of a problem, although not an emergency should be attended to promptly. Your technician can trace the problem by accessing fault codes through the climate control panel. SERVICE NOW indicates a more severe problem which will most likely precipitate a failure / breakdown. The CHANGE OIL LIGHT indicates by time and mileage is a separate light.
